the hawthorn tree - june


The hawthorn tree is looking very green, now that the blossom has been and gone.


The haws are in a very early stage of development.


I like the pattern that the old, dried stamens create.
Growing within the tree, the brambles are soon to flower.

Under the tree, the grass is getting long, even though there are cows now in the field. Buttercups dominate, with pignuts on the slopes.

And in amongst the grass is creeping cinquefoil, with it's cheery simple yellow flowers.
